of her most vocal critics. the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations has been criticized. mccain now says he will not block rice's nomination and he'll give her a chance to explain. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> rice has said that her description of the attack was based on the best intelligence at the moment. republicans have accused her of downplaying an obvious terrorist attack for political motives. >>> other stories we're watching this morning, a huge gas explosion in springfield, massachusetts, that hurt 21 people was the result of human error. the state fire marshal's office says a utility worker inadvertently poked a hole in a high pressure gas line. that line was incorrectly indicated by sidewalk markings. on friday afternoon the gas built up and eventually it ignited. one building was destroyed. dozens more were damaged. >>> police are investigating the death of a suspected shoplifter at a suburban atlanta walmart. several reports sa

we all know that she comes to the job of ambassador of the united nations highly qualified, rhodes scholar, a diplomat, very well respected all across the world. and if the president chooses to nominate her, then the senate has the obligation, i think, to ask the questions they need, but to affirm that and confirm that nomination. but it's his choice, not theirs. >> i completely agree. i think it also plays into the narrative they just won't give this president the respect he is due as president of the united states and the decisions that he's making. congresswoman donna edwards, thank you very much for joining us. have a happy thanksgiving. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. >>> stay with us. much more ahead. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] everyone deserves the gift of all day pain relief. this season, discover aleve. all day pain relief with just two pills. a new way to save on your prescriptions. it's the aarp medicarerx saver plus plan from unitedhealthcare. with this plan, you can get copays as low as a dollar through a preferred network pharmacy like walgreens -- where you'll
